Shelby County Circuit Court Judge Robert Childers announced his retirement today after 33 years on the bench, Memphis Daily News reports. He was first elected in 1984 in a special election. “I consider my service as judge as the pinnacle of my legal career,” said Childers. “I have been blessed.” Childers’ retirement will be effective at the end of June. The Trial Court Vacancy Commission is now accepting applications for the position, which must be submitted to the Administrative Office of the Courts by June 26.
